Dragon Age: Inquisition Won’t Look As Good On Current-Gen As Next-Gen Systems


Dragon Age: Inquisition producer Mark Darrah says the graphics on the upcoming role-playing game won’t look as good on the last-gen systems as they will on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which is understandable considering both are stronger by far. However, Darrah did state the gameplay mechanics will remain the same, nothing has been compromised on that front.

If you’re looking to pick up Dragon Age: Inquisition on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, fear not! The game will play just fine, only the graphics will have taken a slight hit, but we’ve all dealt with graphics on those consoles for years now, it should be no huge shock.

Darrah, on the topic of graphics, said:

No.¬†¬†would say we’re definitely making this game to take advantage of the hardware that we have. I don’t think we’ve had to make any compromises. Because this is ultimately about you controlling a party. The combats are designed to be controlled in size, and that’s really meant that scaling for the lesser platforms has been a manageable exercise. I don’t think we’re making any gameplay compromises. Graphically, yeah, I think you’re gonna see some compromises on the last-gen stuff, but in gameplay, I think we should be able to keep parity.

We can handle the graphics, it’s the story and gameplay we’re really after.

Dragon Age: Inquisition will launch on October 7th for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
